Indianapolis + St. Louis

Last week we were on vacation. We visited three new cities = Chicago (being the main one), Indianapolis, and St. Louis. We hit up Indianapolis on our way to Chicago and St. Louis on our way back home to Lynchburg. Here's a look at two of the three. . .

We rented bikes in Indianapolis to experience White River State Park. It's a good thing we did because it was a big park. Here is Joe riding along the river walk.


It was a beautiful city and one of the cleanest we've ever visited. We enjoyed the rest of our evening by walking through downtown Indy.

Here are some shots from St. Louis:
Joe being silly with the Gateway Arch


It really is an amazing monument. And fun fact, it's made out of stainless steel. 


Oh and I had to show you this. This is what we rode to the top. Oh my word, I called it a tiny vestibule lol...so tiny and no ac (only fits 5 people). I thought I was going to puke but made it to the top.

My next post is all about Chicago so be sure to read!

Again, great pictures! How long was the drive? Peter hates flying so we've done the 16+ hrs to FL every time. Not so bad if you break it up like you did. Indianapolis + St. Louis look like great places to spend a little time.

It took 12 hours to get to Chicago. We drove 9 hours to Indy so we only had 3 hours left to Chicago. We didn't think it was bad at all!
